Dowina Puella DC
Dowina Antique Solid top series, made in EU.
The Dowina factory is located between Bratislava and Vienna.
The production started in 1979. To begin with tha factory started to manufacture violins. Gradually, they built up their know-how, experience and intuition. The result was fantastic instruments. Inspired by the violin makers' knowledge, guitar production was also started. A crucial factor for the quality is the choice of wood material.
Dowina picks wood material from the Dolomites in the Alps - Val di Fiemme. Wood with extraordinary resonance properties. They also use selected Sitka and Cedar from Alaska and from the western parts of the United States. This, together with their great professional skills, results in unique guitars where the feeling, tone and appearance are outstanding for their actual price range.
Dowina Puella - solid top - Antique series
Puella is part of the Antique Series with a solid top of Sitka or Ceder from Canada. Back and sides of sapele. The neck of Nato is very similar to mahogany. This is an acoustic guitar that surprises with its fine tone. It feels like it's a hand-built guitar, built by skilled professionals. It has volume, sound and clarity in the tone.
It is nice to play on with its matte finish. Especially the back of the neck makes a difference. The hand slides more easily than on a glossy surface. The string height is low to be an acoustic guitar - the neck is relatively thin and quite narrow, so it is easy to play and comfortable.
Puella lacks expensive cosmetic details. Thanks to its simplicity, the price can be kept down... and perhaps simplicity also has a positive impact on the tone - nothing that dampens. Puella sounds great. This is a guitar that plays competitively with much more expensive guitars.
